BURKE CLINCHES ROR RACE OF THE ROCKIES CROWN AND SETS RECORDS ON DUNLOP GP-A PROS
Ryan Burke clinched the 2016 Points Title for MRA’s Race of The Rockies (ROR) over the August 27-28 weekend at Pueblo Motorsports Park. Burke, who rides Dunlop KR451 NTec Slicks on his Yamaha R1, tuned by Imperial Sportbikes, has three victories and two second place finishes in Race of the Rockies (ROR) events this seasons, securing the season title with one race remaining on the MRA circuit.
On Saturday, riding his Imperial Sportbikes built and tuned Yamaha R6 with Dunlop GP-A Pros, Burke also set a new Pueblo track record in the Middleweight SuperSport, turning in a 1:32.1 lap time, more than a full second faster than the previous mark of 1:33.38 set by fellow Dunlop rider Shannon Moham earlier this summer.
The MRA season closes on September 17-18 at High Plains Raceway.
